My "mean" hive draws comb like crazy. It's been a week and 1/2 and they drew out all three of the foundationless frames I put in when I first got them and the other two I added are both over 1/2 done. The other "gentle" hive is working at a much slower pace. I've seen the queen in the "gentle" hive but have not seen her in the other.
Tomorrow is suppose to be a nice day. I'll be giving them a new hive stand (the first one I built isn't completely level), search for the queen, replace a broken frame if the brood emerged, and add an empty medium. I'll be recording it for screen shots in case I find something interesting and to post onto my youtube channel.
I went out today to grab some hardware for the new stand. It's cloudy but warm and very few bees were coming and going. While I was removing the first piece of hardware, one bee just sat on the stand and watched. Even though I was making a bit of noise, no bees come out of the hives to investigate. I did all the work from the rear of the hives, when I was done, I checked the front and noticed a dead bee on the stand in front of the entrance. Since it rained yesterday, I'm thinking neighbors laid down grubx or something.
